3 Factors To Consider When Getting An Ice Maker
While summer has just finished, demand for ice is still at a high. Yesterday was 32°C in Sydney, which is plenty of reason to buy a refreshing cold drink, with ice. Foodservice operators should still be looking for icemakers that will help them maximise sales during their trading peaks.
Commercial ice machines are a popular choice, helping beverage and foodservice operators save time, money and avoid that dreaded 'Ice headache' that is running out of ice mid service.
Storage is as important as production
It’s a myth that production is everything, storage is just as important!
To stay ahead of the game, it's critical your ice machine has enough storage capacity to cope with peak periods. For instance, if your business uses 60kg in its peak period from 6pm to 11pm, purchase an ice machine with at least 60kg storage capacity.
A Brema Ice Machine will then produce enough ice to replenish the storage capacity during both peak and off-peak times, ensuring you’ve always got enough ice to cope with demand.
Consider your climate
Air and water temperatures affect an ice machine's ability to produce ice.
As air and water temperatures increase, production of ice decreases. To ensure you are getting maximum output, purchase an ice machine that is right for your climate.
Enough reason to consider your climate during those peak summer months when demand for ice is greater and conditions are harsher.
Look for real value for money
Buying the next size up may cost you extra in the short-term, but you will save much more in the long run. You'll be safe in the knowledge that you won't run out of ice in peak periods or hot weather, and you won't need to purchase a second machine down the track!
Don't limit your profit potential because you ran out of Ice
Having fresh clean ice allows to you to create all these amazing delicious drinks. Don't limit your profit potential because you ran out of ice.
